Sage R. The Role of Higher Education in Developing Policy and Practice for the Development of the New Industrial Age. Journal of Higher Education Policy And Leadership Studies. 2020; 1 (1) :64-76

Abstract:   (92 Views)

This article discusses a problem that education must address if it is to prepare people adequately for the new industrial age. Intelligent machines are rapidly taking over routine tasks both at home and work. New competencies are demanded now that we are becoming released from practices that have traditionally occupied time. This gives opportunity to communicate across disciplines to solve the challenging problems of today’s world, like climate change, inequality and rapid people movements. It is exciting times as we move into the third decade of 2020. However, we need a more holistic approach to education at all levels- realising that personal, transferable intelligence need as much attention as academic ones in formal learning. In Higher Education (HE), a Practitioner Doctorate now compliments traditional Research models – sponsored by the United States of America (USA) Carnegie Foundation in universities. This produces leaders able to investigate their own work contexts, with ability to change policy and practice to improve performances that are relevant to the local area.
